MASAI MARA & ZANZIBAR CLASSIC - 8 Days

Masai Mara

Maasai Mara National Reserve, situated in the south-west of Kenyan Rift valley, is one of Africa’s greatest wildlife reserve. Together with Serengeti National Park in Tanzania, it forms Africa’s most diverse, incredible and most spectacular ecosystem and possibly the world’s top safari big game viewing eco-system. Renowned for its exceptional wildlife across the vast plains of the Mara.
It is here that the marvelous migration takes place annually that was listed among the seven natural wonders of the world. Most animals sighted in this migrations are about 1.5 million wildebeests, 0.5 million Thomson Gazelles, 0.2 million Zebras, 97,000 Topis and about 18,000 Elands.

Zanzibar Island
A semi-autonomous region of Tanzania, Unguja, erroneously called Zanzibar, is one of two main Islands of the Zanzibar Archipelago, which is made up of a variety of islands and several islets sprinkled across the Indian Ocean.
The island boasts of some of the best beaches in the world, not forgetting its’ rich cultural history.

NOTABLE FACTS:
Stone Town
•Stone Town was declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 2001 and is an eclectic mix of cultures, architecture, and languages.
•Contrary to popular belief, Stone Town is not the capital of Zanzibar. The capital is Zanzibar City, in which Stone Town is situated.
•Stone Town is certainly a must-see when visiting Zanzibar, with its narrow streets, coral stone buildings, and spice markets, all of which make the city a center point of Zanzibari culture.

Prison Island
•Changuu Island (also known as Kibandiko, Prison or Quarantine Island) is a small island northwest of Stone Town. The island saw use as a prison for rebellious slaves in the 1860s and also functioned as a coral mine.
•No prisoners were ever housed on the island and instead, it became a quarantine station for yellow fever cases.
•More recently, the island has become a government-owned tourist resort and houses a collection of endangered Aldabra giant tortoises which were originally a gift from the British governor of Seychelles.

Red Colobus Monkey
•Endemic to Zanzibar Island and found in groups, The Zanzibar Red Colobus Monkey is one of the most endangered species in the world.
•There are about less than 2,000 left on earth due to superstitious hunting and deforestation.

Zanzibar Leopard
•The Zanzibar leopard, the island’s largest terrestrial carnivore and apex predator, is thought to have evolved in isolation from the African leopard since at least the end of the Ice Age when the island was separated from mainland Tanzania by rising sea levels.
•It is unclear whether there are any Zanzibar leopards, left on the island, and experts have previously stated that they are extinct, but potential sightings in recent years have renewed hope that the population is surviving.

Zanzibar Servaline Genet
•The Zanzibar servaline Genet was first discovered in the 1990s, and first photographed in 2003.
•The servaline Genet was known to locals for some time before its discovery by zoologists, and these animals have only recently been classified by scientists.
•The Genet is distinct in appearance, with black spots on tan-colored fur, and their long tails are ringed with black and light-colored bands.
